History of BDP

Basic Developments Partners (BDP) was established in the year 1999 with the financial assistance of Asia Christian Education Fund (ACEF) of Japan. Dr. (Mrs.) Mina Malakar who was the founder Director of BDP. She experienced in her whole life that no development is possible without education at least primary education. She was medical doctor and she saw that people were not able to take medicine because they can not read doctor's prescription. They were cheated by the merchant or village shop keeper as they did not able to keep account. Sometimes money landers gave some money and collected their finger print on the judicial stamp and took away everything they had. Dr. Malakar discussed with Rev. Funata who was the Executive Director of ACEF. They both agreed with the new idea that they decided to work together on education. Without education, all effort would be gone in vain. They found Basic Development Partners (BDP) and started primary education under the tree or someone's varanda. The teachers were recruited from poor high school going girl so that these teachers can continue their own high school education. Now BDP has Semi pucca building schools. Presently BDP has many programs like High School education program, Health education, Vocational education, Student assistance for higher education, Clean water and sanitation and Disaster management, relief and Rehabilitation program.

BDP provide high school and college education for those who have been graduated from BDP primary schools. They have the opportunity to complete their high school and college education totally free of cost. We also have Foster Child Program for the poor and talented children to continue their education. BDP provides financial support to the foster children. BDP run a vocational education program. The students from the poor or ultra poor families are not able to continue their education because of their poverty. They have nothing to eat when they return home after school. They need to earn to keep their body and soul together but they do not have any skill. What they can do is only labor work with poor wages. In that case, BDP collect them and send them to vocational school to have a short training on electrical, mechanical, welding, carpentry and so on. So that, after completion of training they may have a good wages. BDP sometime responses when we have natural disaster. We immediately communicate with our donor agencies and if they agree we stand beside them with some relief materials. The children of our working areas do not have access to drink clean or pure water. Specially, northern and southern part of Bangladesh. Maximum shallow tubewells' water were found Arsenic pollution. BDP already sunk about 40 deep tubewells (Aresenic free) in our different working areas. There are enough spaces to work on clean wter and sanitation. Though the situation is much better than before. We are providing our students nutrition biscuits during the Tiffin time and it encourages students to come to the school regularly.
